about

Zicatela is a pre-emptive taster from next year’s highly anticipated debut album We Are Yours by Poppy Perezz. The track itself is a genre-straddling, globe-trotting pop song that refuses to be tied down to a single sound or place – a Latin-flavoured stew with a sprinkling of Africa and a splash of the Caribbean. Que aproveche!

about

Poppy Perezz Bristol, UK

The four piece, hailing from Mexico, Trinidad and England but now resident in the suitably cosmopolitan city of Bristol, make feel-good, sunshine-happy music for cool and groovy summer nights. Described variously as pinball electro, chirp-hop or even electro-funk-folk pop, one thing’s for certain: you’re unlikely to have heard anything quite like it before. ... more

Track Name: Zicatela (Radio Edit)
Zicatela Summer

My boy goes wild diving through the crashing waves
Throwing himself into the foam of the turquoise sea
Now he’s coming back to me in the burning sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Running through wave, barrels of green in a spindrift wind
Walking with him, salt on my skin, do a cartwheel now
Now I’m coming back to him in the burning sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Goddess look down with your afro of stars
Rain down your pearls of hope on us
Lift us up high!
Take our souls on your Milky Way

Ahhhhh!

Sun sinking low, kids come to play in the ocean swell
Holding his hand, running from waves they are liquid gold
Now he’s coming back to me in the setting sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Goddess…
Track Name: Zicatela (instrumental)
None, but otherwise:

My boy goes wild diving through the crashing waves
Throwing himself into the foam of the turquoise sea
Now he’s coming back to me in the burning sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Running through wave, barrels of green in a spindrift wind
Walking with him, salt on my skin, do a cartwheel now
Now I’m coming back to him in the burning sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Goddess look down with your afro of stars
Rain down your pearls of hope on us
Lift us up high!
Take our souls on your Milky Way

Ahhhhh!

Sun sinking low, kids come to play in the ocean swell
Holding his hand, running from waves they are liquid gold
Now he’s coming back to me in the setting sun
We’ve awoken now in Mexico and the sky is gold!

Goddess…
